I’m still pretty bummed about the death of Mike Scaccia, guitarist for Ministry, Revolting Cocks and Rigor Mortis.
He died from a heart attack. I’ve had heart issues in the past so, perhaps for selfish reasons, I’ve been dwelling on Mike’s passing.
Mike died Saturday night while playing with Rigor Mortis in Fort Worth, Texas.
Now, an official public memorial has been announced for Mike.
It will be held December 30 at 3:00 p.m. at Aristide Event Center in Mansfield, Texas. The event is open to the public, and respect is expected.
Medical examiners determined Mike died of a sudden heart attack brought on by a heart disease.
Officials ruled he died from natural causes.
Sciacca was pronounced dead at 12:26 a.m. in the emergency room at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth.
His daughter Sarah posted a message on his Facebook page at 3 a.m. Dallas time on Sunday, saying, “I love you so much dad. I love you so much.”
Mike is survived by his wife Jenny Rowen Scaccia, with whom he has two toddlers, and daughters Sarah Scaccia and Taarna Scaccia Hopkins.
